suggests the obama administration has been involved in an outright cover up. there are reports tonight that officials within the administration were concerned from the very beginning about the message the white house chose to push after the attack. the attack that was spontaneous they said, and not at all the work of terrorists. here's white house spokesman jay carney back on the 14th of september. >> the incident in benghazi, as well as elsewhere, but these are all being investigated, what i'm saying is that we have no evidence at this time to suggest otherwise, that there was a preplanned or alterior investigation behind the unrest. my point was that we don't have and did not have concrete evidence to suggest that this was not in reaction to the film. lou: he's referring to the almost car toonish anti-islam youtube video that the president and his administration have blamed from the outset despite the claims by intelligent sources that the obama administration knew within a matter of hours that the assassination of am ambassador stevens and three other americans was carried out by te
starting in october. i don't think this obama campaign are going to let it go quietly through the three debates. >> we withanks >>> good evening, americans. and welcome to "the ed show." i'm ezra klein in for ed schultz, and there is 55 days until the 2012 election. the tragic events in libya today have turned into ugly politics in america. this has genuinely been one of those 24-hour periods that could reshape not only the presidential campaign, but american foreign policy going forward. we'll have all the details. as ed would say, let's get to work. today was an incredibly important day in the u.s. presidential race. in response to the awful attacks in libya, mitt romney said something that was genuinely unbelievable. and then more amazing, he doubled down on it. this is the kind of thing, the kind of day we could look back on the 2012 campaign and say, yeah, romney just never quite managed to recover from that. here's romney and obama today. >> i think it's a -- a -- a terrible course for america, to stand in apology for our values. >> there's a broader lesson to be learned
ideas from both parties for a plan to save medicare. president obama hasn't done a thing. president obama is complicit with this program going bankrupt. >> reporter: mitt romney himself in california today as you mentioned not campaigning for votes but it turns out the republicans are few million short behind the democrats in last month's fund-raising contest. so romney out there and yesterday he was in a wealthy suburb of san francisco at a fund-raising event. he also he8d a public appearance in las vegas. two more fund-raisers in southern california, los angeles and san diego. this comes, by the way, as he gets a clean bill of health from longtime family doctor. he says he is suited for the rigors of being president and only problem he appears to have some high cholesterol. >> gregg: he joins a lot of americans with that issue. >>> nominee paul ryan than the isn't the only one campaigning in wisconsin. president obama is there as well. we have the latest from the campaign trail straight ahead. >> heather: right now romney and president obama is campaigning in different parts of th
, but he is willing to listen and trying to do what he says mr. obama has not been able to -- lead. watch this. >> you may not agree with me on every issue. and the american people may not agree with me on every issue. but i don't think i have been called anything besides a strong leader. know how it lead. i will bring america together. i will not divide america. i will bring us together to accomplish great things for our great nation. >> to put the rough week of last and the week before that behind them, they are accelerating the battle on the ground, tonight he goes to colorado. and during the course of all of this, their idea is that it will come down to 6 to 10 states stad in most of the state, mr. romney is in a tie or trailing by a point or two, within the margin. every one of the states that will decide the election were won by barack obama four years ago, so romney knows he has to take them back and put them into the red column. >> it's been sometime since mitt romney has been in colorado, why so long? >> 7 weeks and it's a key battleground state. that's a long time for the princi
. in a lot of these places, one organizing principle has been islam. >> rick: president obama on 60 minutes and numerous remarks on cairo attacks and bump in the road comments ignored by the media and steve had a follow-up on that comment. >> they never follow up with the president. fundamental flaw in the media's thinking as exhibit by steve croft. they say the organized principle is islam. it's not just islam but extremist wing and maybe turkey and deinz but we don't know where that is going where the fundamentalist islam has been nonviolent or promoted the equality of women. editorials in newspapers all missed this because they don't have a religious perspective. >> rick: the assassination of our ambassador, two former seals of a state department employee, where was the criticism over that comment? >> i think what the president was talking about was the broader context of the wave of change that in the wave of change they there is going to be bumps in the road. those people didn't interpret to mean that the death of four american officials is is a bump in the road. that being said there
staffers. president obama not condemning the libyan government. >> today we mourn for more americans that represent the best of the united states of america. we will not waiver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act and make no mistake, justice will be done. >> this is on the heels of romney's slamming the president's response which became a fierce back and forth between the two campaigns. and mitt romney appeared in florida, launching a preemptive attack on the obama administration. >> the first response of the united states must be outrage of the breach of the sovereignty of our nation. an apology for american values is never the right course. as i watched over the passed 3 1/2 years, the president has had some successes and failures, and it's a hit or miss approach, but not based upon sound foreign policy. >> here is the statement released just before midnight that kicked off the campaign bickering. romney saying it's disgraceful that obama's administration's first response was not to condemn the attack but to sympathize with those that waged

obama went to cairo after he became united states, and he gave a speech that was an outreach to muslim and apologetic from the united states. his theory if i am nice to the people of middle east they will be our friend. here is a snippet of that. >> i come to cairo to seek a new beginning between the united states and muslim. one based on mutual about and mutual respect and based on the truth that america and islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition . >> brian: we knew that and how is that going. charles weighed in last night. >> we are seeing the melt down and collapse of the obama policy on the muslim world. the irony that it began in cairo at the same place in which he made the speech in which hemented a new beginning and implying other presidents particularly bush, there was a lack of mutual respect which was an insult to the united states and which had gone to war six times on behalf of muslims and kuwait and bosra, iraq and tan stan and elsewhere. so to imply that we somehow had mistreated the muslim which was the premise of his speech and how the iraq war inflamed
's goal in this campaign was to make it a referendum on obama. obama's goal was to make it a choice and oddly now it's become a referendum on romney. all the focus now is on romney and who he is. now, the upside for that for romney is he has an opportunity to reveal his vision, his goals, his policies in a way that we really haven't heard before because i think now he realizes and the campaign realizes that it can't just be a referendum on obama, that he now has to fill in the story, and that's got to be part of their strategy now. >> gloria, this talk about his father just doesn't feel like damage control. it seems like the latest example of something they've tried to do at the conventions to make the governor seem more relatable, like someone who isn't totally insulated fromhe problems of ordinary people. doesn't it? >> yeah. i mean, that's their real problem, and if you look at the numbers, wolf, it's kind of unsustainable for them. they have to turn this around, which is that by a three-to-one margin according to some polls, voters believe that president obama better understands
in the muslim world. president obama is set to address the general assembly. that will happen tomorrow. what does he need to say in that address to that group about all of this? republican senator john barrasso says world leaders and the american people need to hear three messages he believes from the u.s. president. he will tell us what he believes that must be. that is coming up a few minutes away. pressure increases on the white house to answer more questions about what happened the night that four americans were killed in libya. the government there claims that it is launching its own major crack down now against the country's militias. will that make a difference in all this? greg call coat joins us now streaming live from tripoli with the very latest. good morning, greg. >> reporter: hey, martha. we're a day away for the deadline for the rogue militias to disband. we spoke with a libyan official in trip poe -- tripoli he is claiming it is going better than expected. one of the group militants left a base here. there was a little bit of skirmishing but went off okay. they're being repla
lead the nation with liberty, great and gravity. >> mr. obama was praised by a litany of people from his favorite television network. >> sly like a fox, i guess, but the reality is that those who are beyond the purview of fox television don't see it that way, the american public, look at the difference between president obama and candidate for the presidency, mitt romney, mr. obama could have taken the bait on 60 minutes, and say, look, i'll let the american people decide that, he was kra shus and grateful. mitt romney, on the other hand, uses a day of national mourning and galvanizing grief for the american soul. as a result of that, to undermine the very virtues that we want to say to the rest of the world. beyond the fox news purview, those on the right wing, mr. romney does not look like an adroit and careful leader. >> have you ever -- >> i just want to take this aback, i disagree with the premise here and i don't want mitt romney and the gop to get -- mitt romney really blew it. and instead of having the courage and grace to come out and say, you know what? i may have spoken to
10:00 last night. quote, it's disgraceful that the obama's administration first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks. if you're scratching your head, it probably doesn't exist. never mind, mr. romney, carry on. >> it's never too early for the united states government to condemn attacks on americans. >> never too early even if the attacks haven't happened yet. joining us now here in new york is msnbc political author jonathan, and dana milbank, for "the washington post." in his news conference today romney says the three branches of his foreign policy, i'm quoting him, confidence, clarity and resolve. i notice the word accuracy was absent. >> it's not just that it was inaccurate. it was that it was very unpresidential and unwise. you know, one of the things that voters are looking for, especially when they're looking at a challenger, is what would this person actually be like on the job as president of the united states. >> and here you have the example. >> we have a glimpse. john boehner, mitch m
in to the u.s. embassy in yemen. in telephone calls today, president obama be thanked the president of yemen for condemning this embassy attack, but he told the president of egypt that the embassy there needs to be better protected. all of this, of course, comes a day after the u.s. ambassador to libya and three other americans were killed in a fiery assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. our team of correspondents is covering every angle of this story, and we begin in benghazi where charlie d'agata made it inside the american consulate where the americans died. >> reporter: the attackers made sure there was nothing left. every single room in every single building on this compound looks like this-- torched and ransacked. no place was safe and there is nowhere to hide. a young neighbor zahi braham najem, showed us around the ruins. he used to visit the consulate often before it was destroyed. >> they burn everything, they steal everything, and they broke the dishes. >> reporter: the people in the neighborhood we spoke to said it wasn't clear who was behind the attack. a libyan secu
, obama g go to hell, hollywood o to hell. the police used pitcher spray against the crowd. police detained more than 120 protet evers. they do plan to release them after checking identification. clearly tensions rising across europe as well as the middle east and northern africa. >> and even in australia some things that we have been >> yeah.ng down there, australia has a large muslim population and in sydney there was a group of hundreds of muslim demonstrators who gathered outside the u.s. consultate. they were on the steps of the building and throwing shoes at the building and then refused to move when the police moved in. so that is when things got heated there. there was one officer hit in the head with a bottle. numerous protesters were injured and arrested by police who were using their clubs and pepper spray and even police dogs. in sydney, australia. it was an ugly clash. it has been welled for now but leading many to wonder what is next, where is next and how bad is this thing going to get? >> rick, thank you very much. >>> right now we are learning more about a situatio
that president obama has had throughout this campaign has been foreign policy, and the other thing is i think they're trying to deflect from the fact that part of the problem, part of the reason we have the relationship and some of the tensions that exist are because of the war, preemptive war, war of choice by president bush in iraq and then afghanistan and that's part of what president obama has actually been trying to, you know, in addition to getting us out of the wars, undo some of that damage. that's not a conversation they want to have. i find it talk about the sabre rattling, noecons going into iran, if we did that, it would be a similar situation, american forces on the ground, american resources not spent at home. it could be morsi we have seen on television now or as we saw with american loss of life coming home. there's a responsible element to this as well. >> you say that. julian, all i hear from people like paul ryan and the other expert on foreign policy, sarah palin, is that this president's affect has been one of weakness, and yet we've seen multiple dictators fall, and cert
